you have senator john mccain scolding you, when senator john mccain has been one person who has been after chuck hagel on his own, then you know you have gone too far. rubio was flawless last week. he took a mistake, which looked like the mistake of a water bottle, and turned it into a plus, like few politicians have ever done. maybe like bill clinton we went on, i think, one of the late night talk shows to make fun of johnny carson. john where i carson. s thank you. >> well, rubio so far has just about done everything right, and if one of the big players in the emgregs debate, working with the other side, and has shown that aside from that state of the union response, he picks himself up and moves right on and is making his foreign trip. thank you very much. margaret, good to see you. chris, of course, our daily fix. connecticut lawmakers, meanwhile, are moving very swiftly on new laws at the state level to combat gun violence inspect response to the newtown massacre. vice president biden was there yesterday to urge them on. >> the reflection of what the standing assumption is in am
